Default Morning street experience...

This happened while I was on my way to work this morning about a couple of hours ago.
I was in my car, enjoying 94.3 Radio One FM station.
Then came along a school van I think in which there were some girls. The appeared to be like 13 / 14 / 15 year old not more than that.
My car and the school van was almost going parallel to each other.
Then one girl shouted at me waving her hand and said Hi. I just looked at her gave a smile and turned towards the front to concentrate on the road ahead of me.
After this all girls were teasing me, someone was winking at me, someone was calling me and saying Hi, someone was asking for my phone number, someone was sending flying kisses towards me etc.
This whole thing went on for about 5 mins or so until a point came where they had to turn right and I had to go straight.
At this point I think the girls realised this and as their van was about to take a right turn, all the girls who were teasing me came to their windows and waved their hands shouting bye, have a nice day etc.
Then they went their way and I went my way.
This incident has set a nice mood for the rest of the day.

Anybody else would like to share some nice experiences like this along the road which made you feel good?

Didnt understand the question.
But am sure if i were to talk directly to people carrying that expression, they would probably say, "OMG! It speaks!!!"

LOL. While reading the first few lines, I thought because of all the attention, you lost concentration and crashed into someone . Good that nothing of that sort happened and set you into a nice mood.

I do cross a lot of schools and school buses on my way to work, but most of them are kids.

Sometimes, Kids, I mean the younger ones , maybe 5 year old ones always smile or say Hi to you when you look at them in a school van. This happens esp when you are stuck in traffic and have time to look around. They respond pretty innocently and it makes your day pretty much.

Some talk (sign language) I have with kids :

Hi

Your dress is good

Which School (Dump question, but it lifts the kids spirits )

Byeeeeeeeeeeeee

Had your breakfast

When I read the title, I also thought you got distracted and banged into somebody..

Oh yes. Not the girls, but many times I have crossed school buses and if we make eye contact, they invariably smile or wave. Very refreshing. I remember once me having a whale of a time with a kid in a Verna, driving from Mysore. Most of the trip I was following this car and the kid initially was intrigued but later smiled, waved, gave kisses and it was lot of fun. The parents( I think so ) also enjoyed the kids actions and it felt nice.

Just smile and wave boys, smile and wave

Most of the times there are kids in the rear window of the school buses who wave out to you. Its good fun at times. But you had 15 year old girls waving at you. No wonder you enjoyed your Emotional Athyachar
